Warrenton Heart Link Women's Networking Group
The Warrenton Heart Link Network® will hold a meeting of like-minded business women who are interested in creating heartfelt, meaningful relationships with one another that will in turn strengthen their communities. The meeting begins with a wonderful buffet lunch (included in the price of your registration) with networking. Lunch is followed by time for each woman to give a 3 minute spotlight on her business or interest. No membership, just $20 to attend each month. Your payment is your reservation. This is a industry/company exclusive event, so to guarantee your seat is available you must register on my Heart Link chapter page. Please contact me if you are uncertain about your industry seat or if you are inviting a first time guest, so that I can check to see if their industry seat is available. I look forward to “linking” with you!
Fauquier Philosophy Forum
Hello everyone, Thank you for your patience during the recent Meetup service outage and the subsequent website malfunctions. Looks like the problem has finally been resolved and we are up and running again. I have taken into consideration a few suggestions that were made at the last meeting, including the provision of a working definition of each selected topic and a more traditional approach to philosophical matters. Please be aware that FPF is foremost a social group designed to bring together individuals with an interest in sharing ideas and gaining new insights into a variety of issues. We are not focused on historical thinkers and their recognized theories; rather, this group is intended to explore contemporary issues from a philosophical—that is, theoretical, thoughtful, truth-seeking—angle. For those who are interested in a more formal and purist philosophy group, I would recommend you try Socrates Café, which meets every second and last Tuesday of the month at the Fauquier library (link below). I think the best meeting format would be to have a 2-hour discussion on the selected topic at a suitable (i.e., quiet, affordable) location and then, for those who are interested in continuing the meeting, switch to a more relaxed and conversational dialogue, related or not to the chosen theme. I welcome ideas but hope this approach is the most satisfactory for everyone. Since Tuesday seems to be the day that works best for regular members, I propose that we start meeting on the third Tuesday of every month so that our schedule does not conflict with that of Socrates Café. Therefore, our next meeting would be 3/18 at the usual time (6 pm). Thank you to Jack for the suggestion that we tackle transhumanism during our next meeting. As this is a rather complicated and technical topic, I suggest we focus more on the benefits and implications (moral, cultural, medical, psychological, etc.) than the specific mechanics of transforming humans—and humanity as a whole—through technology.
